The choroid plexuses are structures in the ventricles (spaces) of the brain that produce the cerebrospinal fluid. Each plexus is made up of a network of capillary blood vessels covered by transporting epithelial cells.
Occasionally fluid becomes trapped and forms pockets in the choroid plexus. These pockets of fluid are called choroid plexus cysts (CPC). Choroid plexus cysts are seen during 1% to 3% of all mid-trimester prenatal ultrasound examinations. The cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain, and generally have no effect on fetal development. However, choroid plexus cysts do have a weak association with fetal chromosome abnormalities.
So there you go. About 1% of ultrasounds show these and then my doctor tells me that about 98% of these cases will resolve themselves without any issues whatsoever. We have an ultrasound in another month to see what is happening. I am looking forward to seeing the baby again! If you would join me in prayer for our little one I would appreciate it.
